Downtown infrastructure is a major public investment.
Only healthy businesses in buildings assessed at full value generate taxes that give taxpayers a good return on this public investment.

Eau Gallie Arts District is a symbol of: 

  • Community economic health 
  • Local quality of life 
  • Community pride and history
  • Partnership between the private sector and public sector 
  • Represents independent businesses that support local projects
  • Keeps profits in town instead of corporate headquarters

Eau Gallie Arts District is...

  • A major employer.
  • An important community space where people can connect and belong.
  • Where our arts and culture thrives.
  • A tourist attraction and what has unique businesses and buildings.
  • An important factor for developers and professional recruitment.
Downtown revitalization protects property values in surrounding residential neighborhoods.
